Our warm and inviting sanctuary is the center of Beth Tikvah’s focus. It's appeal is especially inviting for Shabbat services, High Holy Days, B’nei Mitzvah, or weddings. The sunken floor and surrounding brick wall comfort congregants during services and provides a feeling of intimacy for smaller gatherings, while allowing for larger events when necessary.
Permanent seating allows for 120, but can be expanded to accommodate approximately 550 guests for a large service or lecture style event. The bima provides the perfect setting for our beautiful chuppah which is made available to all members.
